There will be nearly 20 boats for customers to test at its demo docks.

More than 400 boats up to 75 feet in length will be on display at the 37th annual Bay Bridge Boat Show, set to kick off Friday and run through Sunday in Stevensville, Md., at the Bay Bridge Marina.

The PropTalk Demo Dock is back again to give prospective boat buyers an opportunity to take a test ride.

New this year is a VIP lounge that will serve a continental breakfast, luncheon buffet, and afternoon hors d’oeuvres provided by Hemingway’s Restaurant. It will also serve complimentary drinks sponsored by Papas Pilar Rum, Tito’s Vodka, and Tunnel of Elms by Berringer Wine, as well as soft drinks, water and coffee. It also includes a pre-qualification program through L-H Finance.

The show will have 100 on-land exhibits with accessories, water toys, clothing, gear and services such as boat clubs, insurance firms and lending institutions.

BoatUS will offer affordable on-water training courses including an introductory course, a “Women Making Waves” course, and training focused on docking and boat handling.

Chesapeake Bay Magazine will offer seminars on topics including “Boating With Tablets,” “Docking and Line Handling,” and “Getting Your Captain’s License.”
